I am curious to know what are the various technology solutions that are being used to support File services (besides SharePoint). In essence, solutions to make file services highly available (eg. DFS).

I’m not sure what you mean.  How about, Google docs?


To simply put it, how do you make a File server highly available? It has to be an in house server as the data could be confidential.

Thank you.
